For your own safety and the preservation of the park, obey posted signs and keep to designated trails. Shortcutting trails destroys plant life and soil structure and may adversely impact water quality in the community watershed.

Tplaqin (Enderby Cliffs) Trail

Directions to the trailhead: The trail is for hiking only. No horses, motorized vehicles or mountain bikes are permitted. To access the trailhead, turn East onto Mabel Lake Road and continue for 2km. Take a left hand turn onto Brash Allen Road, heading north. At 1.4km, Brash Allen road forks, stay right and continue down the unpaved road for 1.6km until you reach the parking lot on the left, which is also where the Tplaqin trail begins.

Description of the trail: Recently upgraded through a collaborative effort with Splatsin, the Shuswap Trail Alliance and BC Parks, the Tplaqin trail winds its way to the summit on a well laid-out and maintained single track surface. The trail emerges from forest cover in a number of areas affording hikers sweeping vistas of the valley below, before finally reaching the top of the cliffs and the most impressive view of all.

Hiking time: One and a half to two and a half hours each way. Difficulty is moderate to strenuous.


Reeves Lake is a small lake popular for trout fishing. The terrain around the lake is quite wet and marshy, though there are a couple good dry spots for fishing. Very large skunk cabbage and lily pads are the dominant vegetation. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

Motorized vehicles are not permitted at Reeve’s Lake or other areas of the park.

Wildlife viewing
At nearly 1200m, the cliffs tower 850m above the valley floor and offer a terrific view of both the Shuswap and the Okanagan Valley.
Pets on leash

Pets and domestic animals must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in beach areas or park buildings. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.


This park is open to hunting. Please check the BC Hunting & Trapping Regulations Synopsis for more information.
